Trump Administration New Policy Authorizing and Encouraging Step Therapy.
For those of you who don't know, step therapy has traditionally been used to interfere with prostate cancer treatment protocols. Not certain how it will play out with current protocols.
A word to the wise, if you have prostate cancer you probably want to give Medicare Advantage plans a wide berth. Once you sign up for any Medicare plan you will have a problem leaving. Transfers from one plan to another is subject to the pre-existing conditions rule that Obamacare removed from non-Medicare health plans.
"Medicare Advantage plans, which are offered by private companies, will also be able to use step therapy, or starting patients on less expensive options before moving them up to more expensive drugs."
